Ugh! I hate this glue. My knees hate it worse. I had a reaction to it on the first knee, but whoever did the close on the second knee was super sloppy with the glue and I had it way beyond the incision. I gives me a rash! I rubbed around it and encouraged it to peel off. Probably not recommended, but I was desperate. I wound up on antibiotics in case the rash was actually cellulitis.Also, my entire knee is covered in glue, it itches, pulls etc. How can I get it off me? I still have some steri strips on so I promise not to bother my incision
Yes, they draw those lines before surgery, to help them line up your skin accurately when they close your incision.It's taken a week or so for me to look at my incision. Every time I do, I get queasy.
Today I realized the dark marks are the Sharpe the surgeon used to mark! The dark marks perpendicular to the incision are MARKS, not incision, expansion...
